Herbert Jones was a young officer in the Navy. He died rescuing others during the attack. His wife, Joanne was living in Honolulu, in officer living quarters. Joanne remarried and her son-in-law, Charles Edward Aubrey, had this to say about Herbert Jones:

When the ship got hit (Herbert) went down below to get all the people below deck, and on his fourth or fifth trip, there was a big torpedo explosion and he was killed.

Edsell class destroyer escort USS Herbert C. Jones (DE-137) was named after this Pearl Harbor Hero.
